Austin, TX --National Instruments kicked off it's annual NI Week gathering on Wednesday. Not only was it a celebration of the company's 25th anniversary, but the launch of Version 6.0 of its Measurement StudioTM.
Expanded measurement capabilities in the package now include the ability to integrate vision and motion hardware into measurement applications. Engineers can do this via new intuitive, task-oriented software interfaces. There are also more driver ActiveX controls for Visual Basic for better instrument compatibility. And with the updated interface controls, engineers can readily display data on "professional quality" graphs.
In automation, NI also announced the FieldPoint TM 2000 Family that enables using LabVIEW embedded on compact industrial I/O nodes to build real-time distributed monitoring and control systems.
